State Approaches to Building Water System Regulation

Increased concern and awareness of Legionella in buildings as well as a 2017 Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services memo on reducing Legionella risk in healthcare facilities are drivers of a focus on Legionella in building water plumbing and, in some cases, supplemental disinfection in buildings. ASDWA’s State Approaches to Building Water System Regulation provides a review of federal rules and agency guidance on Legionella control, discussion on important defining topics like what constitutes treatment and when a building becomes a public water system, and outlines nuanced flexibilities in regulations drawing from EPA water supply guidance.

The Association of State Drinking Water Administrators (ASDWA) is the professional Association serving state drinking water programs. Formed in 1984 to address a growing need for state administrators to have national representation, ASDWA has become a respected voice for state primacy agents with Congress, the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and other professional organizations.

Elevating Drinking Water as a National Priority

One of the most important roles ASDWA has is to make sure no one stops thinking about water. Whether that means spending time on the Hill to speak with Congressional staff about drinking water issues, or expanding the reach of our communications to the public by way of social media, ASDWA is constantly working to advance our message of public health protection on behalf of our members. Having safe drinking water is taken for granted by many, so ASDWA continually emphasizes drinking water’s importance for public health and for the economy.
